Interesting, unorthodox technique - but it WORKS!

  1. Here's a link to a video with a fellow bassist from my hometown, Mr. Quintin Berry. Quintin has a bit of an unorthodox technique, but the man can lay down some groove. What do you think?

  3. Im not sure if "it works" in a comparative way... That stuff he´s playing is possible and easiest with a traditional technique.
    An "unorthodox technique that works" should be one that allows you to play easier or sound different. If not, it makes no sense IMHO

    Might be OK using it for a song or two, but I'd imagine my right hand would be a little tired (to say the least...!! ) after a two hour...plus...gig. ;)

    Yeah, outside the established box, but if he's making music, who really cares.
